      This gets right up my nose!

      Up until recently I never knew I had nasal hair. Don't get me wrong I haven't got loads sprouting out of my nose or anything awful like that but if I tip my head back the dark hairs can be seen close against my skin and I was very unhappy about this being a lady after all lol!

      I was horrified when I realised this and my stepfather kindly gave me his to try which I ended up keeping in the end. It was new by the way when he gave it to me and it still in the original packaging, I'd bought it him originally but he already had one he likes and uses so really had no need to have this lol.

      I was a bit put off from using this as its called Mr Grooming and I'm a Miss Groomer however it doesn't appear too masculine and besides I wasn't having it or using it after all to show off anyway and it is, to me very much a private item!

      I paid about £13.00 for this hair trimmer which came on a card and covered in see-through plastic about a year ago from a local chemist so you need to Google this if interested though I think I did see this recently in Boots I'm sure. On the back of the card we are told what it is as we are on the front of the card of course and we are told that it takes one AA battery which is not included and contact details for the manufacturer are given.

      The main of the unit itself is grey made of plastic and measures in total 4" H x 1" in diameter. The end screws off to pop a battery in easy enough but the unit on close inspection does appear rather cheap looking as does the packaging particularly as there are no instructions given at all either. It comes with a push on and pull off lid plus a little brush which is a handy little thing to brush hairs from the unit away with when used though no storage pouch or case is given which is a bit of a shame really.

      All you do is push the angled end into your nose gently to which there is a small silver ball there and push the on button on and it makes a small buzzing noise and rotates and does whip the hairs off really well pain free. With one battery only in it I did think this wouldn't be very powerful at all and that it being designed for a man that it may be a bit big for my titchy, girly nose but not at all anyone can use this easily and then you switch it off, waft the hairs off it and your done and given instant confidence in the nasal area!

      I was surprised how tacky this looked when I removed it from its packaging and the general feel of it isn't great however it is a cheap item and never lets me down. I can't comment where else it removes hairs from as I don't have ear hair or anything else thankfully and when I've removed the hairs with this from up me nose they stay at bay a good couple of weeks and these have given me my confidence right back!

      Google if interested.

        Great gadget

        As I am a manly man, I do suffer from an excess of not only facial hair, but as I have become older I have found hair sprouting up in places it didn't do when I was a younger bloke. I have hair on my face (obviously) but I have also found now that I am growing hair on my back, the tops of my feet and toes, in my ears (on my ears too) and rather long hairs have started to appear from inside my nose.

        As these hang down (and they are red hairs) and they appear to be straight and coarse as opposed to curly, they are obviously rather unattractive. I was using ordinary scissors until the problem became worse over the last year or so and I was finding I was accidentally snipping the ends of my nostril as I attempted to get the hairs as short as I possibly could. As this is rather painful, I decided to invest in some quality nasal hair trimmers and I bought mine from good old Boots for a 'snip' at £13.99.

        The ones I bought are from Mr Grooming and they are not only nose hair trimmers, but ear hair trimmers too. My dear other half has her own version of a lady's nasal hair trimmer which she bought online from some beauty website, but since I have bought mine she has started to use these instead, stating that they are far better to use and she can grasp her nasal hair better with mine than she can her own. My wife does suffer from an unfortunate condition whereby she has to take a lot of hormones as she is lacking in them. The result of these additional man made hormones is that her voice has deepened a little over the past year or so and it has also increased her production of body hair - primarily nasal and foot hair. (Thankfully she doesn't suffer from excess ear hair though!).

        This is a brilliant little trimmer from Boots which requires a battery before you use it (which didn't come with the pack, I have to say). The battery required an AA size and was easy to get hold of - we usually have these about the house as my wife likes to keep a good supply in for her vibrators. I personally love the design of this hair trimmer as it is so small and compact yet incredibly effective at removing unwanted hair efficiently and very effectively.

        I simply insert the trimmer into each nostril and the trimmer rotates quickly (and almost without any noise) and gently removes the hairs without pulling at them. The whole thing is over and done with very quickly and painlessly and it's actually very therapeutic to use this trimmer and watch as all of my little hairs are removed swiftly and easily.

        The actual trimmer is only 3mm long but it takes practice to make sure I don't let it meet the skin, especially when removing the hairs from inside and on top of my ears. Personally I have never had any painful accidents with this great little trimmer.

        I have helped my other half to remove her own nasal hair on a number of occasions and she prefers for me to do this for her as she has not yet mastered the art of doing it herself and I am happy to do this for her. My wife also uses it to remove the hair from between her toes and she is very pleased with the smooth results it gives.

        Overall this is a great little gadget and one I am more than happy to recommend
